KARUVEPPILAI SADAM RECIPE| CURRY LEAVES RICE RECIPE |NO ONION NO GARLIC RECIPE

For this past one month as the kids have school vacation, and even i too took a break from giving lunch box to my hubby. As the school is reopening tomorrow from the past 2 days i am slowly getting into my routine and today i was clueless what to give for his lunch box and suddenly this curry leaves rice came to mind. The recipe for karuveppilai sadam i read in a magazine long back and i managed to recollect that recipe and finally packed his lunch box with curry leaves rice.
